Remember in the 2021 season, when the Viego general was released, Riot opened an event called Great Depression – Guardians of Light to introduce this champion. Even Riot does not encapsulate the event in League of Legends, but all of Riot’s game universe has the appearance of Great Depression. Not to mention, Riot also made a Cinematic and brought the Great Depression to real-life cities.
Viego was heavily invested by Riot for its debut
However, in the end, Great Depression – Guardian of the Light was fiercely criticized for the superficiality of Riot’s content and character lines. After that, when the RPG game Ruined King was released, the League of Legends community temporarily calmed down. And Viego turned out to be an extremely annoying champion of Riot when 5 times 7 “difficult” bugs appeared. Viego is considered as “200 years of experience” but can be considered a rather failed and controversial design phase of Riot later on.
But it turned out to be a general full of errors, like the “infamous” one-shot case of the main house.
But recently, the League of Legends community continues to “stone” Riot because of this Viego champion. The reason was because as it turned out, Viego didn’t have any dialogue when buying the Sword of the Unknown King weapon in the in-game store even though the item was actually taken from Viego’s own sword.
But it turned out that Viego had no interaction when buying his own equipment in the LoL in-game shop.
And it’s worth noting, with no dialogue when buying Sword of the Unknown King, Viego has less interaction with this item than Yorick – a champion also from the Shadow Isles. Specifically, when Yorick buys this item, the Holy Maiden will say “Sword of a great man” while Yorick sarcastically: “Sword of a fool”.

Even Yorick can speak 2 lines
However, there are also some opinions that it is simply because Riot is no longer too focused on designing voice lines for champions when interacting in the in-game shop anymore. But even so, because Viego is a special champion when he has a weapon with his name in the game, in some opinions, Riot should make an exception. Thus, it will increase the excitement of gamers when using this champion and at the same time properly demonstrate Riot’s investment in Viego’s “all-out but total failure” debut last year.
